Hand made Plane #1: Getting started

2394 days ago by GaryK | 15 comments »

First of all let me say that this is the first hand plane I have ever made. I looked at some plans to get the general idea, but basically I am making it up as I go. There are things I did wrong but I will be able to fix them. I saw this type of sole on some planes in magazines and always wondered how they did it.It took me a while but I figured it out. Simple once you know how. I got ahead of myself didn’t get started taking pictures until later so I kind of went back over some th...

Celtic NOT - a journey

983 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

This is the blog of how I built Celtic NOT. The design is one of a recent series of overlapping circle designs. Originally there were two possible patterns These are the original paper models. As you can see the more complicated of the two had an interwoven line on the sides of the box as well. I eventually decided this pattern looked a bit too busy and opted for the simpler of the two. The box was going to be Oak with Sycamore and Walnut stringing. I initially tried making t...

Patchwork Table #2: Afghan Carpet Inspired

1147 days ago by Elwood89 | 3 comments »

I liked the first patchwork coffee table that I made so much that I’m making another one. With improvements of course. Start with a lot of different exotic woods. Thanks to www.exoticwoodsusa.com I started with 2” thick blocks of wood and resawed them to 1” (so I have enough left over to make another table). Make them look pretty (easy to do with this wood). This table was inspired in part by a carpet that I got in Afghanistan a few years ago… The ta...

Vintage Seigh for Christmas

2110 days ago by Karson | 12 comments »

I had seen this vintage sleigh in Wood magazine some time ago and I had to go searching to find it again. It was in December 1997, Issue 101 I believe that I’ve seen it somewhere else but I didn’t want to buy the article without searching further. One of the new officers at the Woodworking Club thought he might have it. He did and he brought the magazine to me and i scanned it and created a pdf for future use and to keep from cutting up his magazine. The sleigh was found at ...

Hand made Plane #2: Finishing it up!

2394 days ago by GaryK | 12 comments »

Now to finish it up. Here is an area that I screwed up on. When I opened up the throat I did both angles. I should have onlydone the side that the iron rests on. Doing the other side will make it wear out being so thin. I shouldhave cut that side straight down at 90 degrees. But I can easily fix that by adding an insert. Here I clamped the sides on the help guide the chisel. Laying the chisel flat againse the angled part madeit real easy to cut. ..I kept cutting the leading block sh...

Building a Hanging Hand Tool Cabinet #1: Constructing the core of the cabinet and the doors

777 days ago by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

Earlier this year, I blogged here on LJ about building my Roubo workbench. As mentioned in that blog, prior to building the workbench, I wasn’t much into hand tools. Not because I had anything personal against them, but instead because I was always in the process of building out my power tool collection. My power tool arsenal is effectively complete at this point, and I have since mastered the basic uses and methods of each of those tools. I decided it was time to start doing more w...

How I did it . . . #1: The Dresser

1053 days ago by Jacquelyn Smith | 6 comments »

Design to Conception Are you interested in doing inlay, veneer, designing and building a project on your own? Here’s an example of a job I designed and built for a client last year. I already had a blog (perfect45degree.blogspot.com/) before discovering LJ. My guess is that most clients probably aren’t very interested in how I build other projects, only theirs. Given the community here, I thought I’d try writing about how I came to design and build the tünr (pronounced “tune-r”) dresser. ...

Launching the Tünr Dresser

1058 days ago by Jacquelyn Smith | 3 comments »

for more pics check out my blog here! My client, Jeffrey, and I imagined, designed and built the first point of purchase (pop) product display unit for tünr last summer. Tünr was the imagination of my brother Jeffrey coming to life as he dreamed, planned, proposed, organized and made crucial decisions. He had this idea; “Fine Tune Your Feet”. This is what he called tünr the sock and lace company that is now launched on the Internet and in street boutiques across the country. He approach...

Marquetry Serving Tray #1: Introduction/Design

99 days ago by jmartel | 1 comment »

My mom approached me about doing something for my father for Father’s day. Only requirements were that it was to be something for their boat, and that it have the boat’s name on it. Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray. For the design, I decided that a prominent Compass ...
